Custom Lure Painting: How To Create Stunning Lure Art That Fish Love!
Custom Lure Painting eBook Also Available At: Amazon
If there is one part of the lure making process I seriously adore, it’s custom lure painting! These days I find it relaxing and therapeutic – but it wasn’t always that way! Airbrushing lures used to be frustrating and very time consuming for me.
Most lure makers spend more time fumbling about trying to figure out the painting process than just about any other step in pursuit of the perfect handmade lure. There’s a lot to know and it can take a lot of trial and error to figure out what works.
In fact, for the many people who are as artistically challenged as I am, custom lure painting can seem quite daunting. Paint control? Pfft! Yeah, right! I can barely hold a crayon…….
I’ve Developed A Custom Lure Painting System For Non-Artists!
It’s true! Learning custom lure painting won’t require a degree in fine art. Actually, there are a bunch of things to get right that are, well, common sense once you’ve seen them. And when you get those right everything becomes so much easier!
Things like having the right equipment. Using the right paint – and thinning it properly. Preparing the lure body correctly. Getting your air pressure right.
Then there’s stencils and masks – and again we’ll keep it really simple. Hand cut stencils are super easy, cost nothing and are very effective. Throw in a few tricks like foiling, painting eyes, fins, gill and stuff and you’re on your way. All without a single ounce of artistic talent!
